Our fantastic dinner at Cucina Marangon

Hi guys!

A couple of weeks ago, the boyfriend and I were invited by my parents to go to dinner at Cucina Marangon. It’s a fantastic Italian restaurant in Turnhout, Belgium. No. No pizza or spaghetti bolognaise… It’s a very classy restaurant. Once you go black Cucina Marangon, you can’t go back! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Why we went to this restaurant? Because my parents had something to celebrate: Their 25th Marriage Anniversary! ๐Ÿ˜€ Hip Hip Hooray!

Let me walk you through our great evening. I do have to apologize for not having pictures of the delicious appetizers because we couldn’t keep our hands off… Sorry!

I’m also very sorry for the bad quality of my pictures. I forgot my camera and since the restaurant is so cozy, it’s difficult to take good pictures. If you have any tips or tricks to fix that, please let me know ๐Ÿ™‚

I do have a picture of this mini pizza appetizer which was great!

Let’s start our 5 courses menu ๐Ÿ™‚ My mom and the boyfriend took the adapted wines. I sticked with water and my dad (our driver) had a special ‘Bob arrangement’ :p That meant he could take a sip of every wine ^^

Starter Cucina Marangon
Course 1: Tuna | Pumpkin coulis | French dressing from pine nuts | Beans
Course 2: Tagliolini Vongole
Course 3: Risotto with rabbit, truffle & vanilla

Oh man. I LOVE Risotto and this one was soooo good! Yumm!

Main Course: Duck with polenta croquettes

My two favorite meats: rabbit and duck. Lucky me! ๐Ÿ˜€

Dessert: Soufflรฉ Glacรฉ Marsala

A yummy trio with amarena cherries ๐Ÿ™‚ I especially liked the tiramisu with this cherry (the one on the left)

And as if that wasn’t enough:

Homemade Cookies!

Was it good? No. It was great! ๐Ÿ˜€

Look at this glass of wine, it’s insanely big! Our friendly sommelier told us it fits a whole bottle… Can you believe it ๐Ÿ˜ฎ


If you ever get the chance to go to Cocina Marangon, please go there. You won’t regret ๐Ÿ˜‰

Have a delicious day โค
